Can LSD use during pregnancy cause tripping type effects for the child long term

    Can LSD use during pregnancy cause tripping type effects for the child long term?

    I have a 9 year old step daughter whose mother did acid while she was pregnant.  This child has serious problems with reality.  I have her seeing a psychiatrist and I have had to have her in special schools before.  Her grasp of reality is ls extremely off and seems to get worse the older she gets.  Is it possible that this has something to do with it?  She acts like she is on an acid trip sometimes that just never ends.  She hears voices, her behavior is very odd to say the least and she honestly scares people.  If this could have anything to do with it, is ther I am just looking for answers.

    LSD, as with any drug, can have severe side effects if taken while pregnant. The exact issues are unknown, and with most things, some babies that are in the womb during drug use can be born healthy as if the mother wasn't doing drugs.

    Alas, I am going to have to say no; the LSD use while she was in the womb probably has nothing to do with her mental state. It sounds more like she has schizophrenia, but your doctor should be able to tell you what's going on with her. If he/she isn't, get a new doctor!
